Boxing Training Advice: Explosive Power Training Tips.

Here are a couple of tips for you when training to develop explosive speed and power.

When training to develop explosive speed and power you MUST execute quality NOT quantity when targeting the explosive high threshold type IIB muscle fibers.

Meaning.. Each rep should be fast, intense. If it’s a half ass effort, Terminate it. Keep in mind FULL recovery between sets will allow pure quality of execution (intention) hence recruiting the high threshold fibers as the nervous system takes 5-7 times longer to recover than cellular tissue so it will be fresh to allow that focused and 100% intensity speed of movement you need to develop crippling power.

Comment below with any questions.

Boxing Training Q/A: How To Relax Tense Fighters.

Hey Rob… Im a Boxing trainer here in miami at a gym called Fight Club. I boxed in the usa boxing amateur club years ago..
question: Ive got a couple bigger fighters that cant seem to loose the tension they build up while training. i tell them to relax but they cant seem to relax enough to gain speed and good form.
any ideas i can do to get them to relax? Thanks, Thomas.

 

Hey Thomas, first, how are they breathing? Are they breathing enough?  Are you saying when they are doing bag work they Are too tense? This is mental, have them take deep, full breaths until they can calm down, stop them when they get tense and have them breathe again, foam rolling is great for mayo facial release along with stretching to break up the knots and bring back ideal length tension to the muscles but again, it’s intention/ mindset that’s causing them to loose it. So deep breathing, lots of it, while slowing down the pace until they can work smooth will help a lot.

Boxing Conditioning Tips: Save Joint Wear & Develop The Areobic System with These Tools.

When developing aerobic capacity through cardiac output training don’t just think roadwork.

Anything in excess is not good, overuse injuries occur from that, over use. While running does elecit 5-7 times your bodyweight of forces on your joints.

While I do love running long distances and have my fighters and athletes as well. It’s in moderation as other tools work just as well in developing aer…obic capacity.

Like a very simple tool in the jump rope.

The versa climber is excellent if you have access to one, as is the airdyne bike, battling rope, and sled. We use all in our gym. They all save joint wear as well.

So while road work is great for cardiac output training it comes with a price of joint wear. Cycle the above tools is for a more productive joint preserving approach.

Think outside the box in your training. That’s where the real results are made.
